So about lunch time today I sat down with my new zippers, new zipper tabs, the instructions and began again.
And now I have a pouch to show you!
It’s not perfect. I’m rushed today because we’re headed to Gainesville (again) this afternoon so I had an hour and a half window to make this pouch and be ready to go. I chose done over perfect. Be a friend and please pretend like you don't notice the uneven stitching lines in places...
BUT…after being more careful with the zippers, this little pouch went together well.
I followed the alternate ending instructions found on Marci’sblog which made a little more sense to me since I am also very visual and I sewed a little too far making my top corners rounded instead of flat.
But that is easily fixable later if I choose to fix it. I might just fix it on the next one… ;)
So, here’s my quick finish today! We’re going to watch the UF softball team this afternoon. The kids and I are running a mile in the morning to complete their “marathon.” They’ve run laps in the mornings before school this year to do the first 25 miles of a marathon and then tomorrow will run the final 1.2 to finish it before the grownups run theirs Sunday for the 5 Points of Life Cancer Research Fund. They get shirts and medals and goodie bags, so they're excited for it.
Then we have a birthday party and family coming into town Saturday afternoon.
Whew—love those busy weekends. At least we’ll have Monday to rest…
What are you up to this weekend and what you finished up recently??
p.s. We named the puppy Daisy and other than forgetting how not fun potty training is, she’s been a doll to have around so far! The kids love her so much!!
